THE PARANOID PARENTS GUIDE Shows There's Not As Much To Worry About As You Might Think

  • Sep 1, 2010
I can admit it: I was raised by a paranoid parent. My mother was caring and overprotected--sometimes to a fault. But I always knew it was out of love and that she meant well. Reading THE PARANOID PARENTS GUIDE by Christie Barnes as someone without children, I don't want to say that it will put your mind at ease about the dangers you fear. I do believe that it is written by someone who knows firsthand what is out there in the world and what is the appropriate response to it. Because of the news and things that we hear, it is scary enough just to get out of bed and try to function as an adult. For parents who want nothing but the very best for their children, regardless of the age, you want to do all you can to protect them from what can seem like the big, bad world.

What Christie Barnes does is say that she understands the urge to want to over-protect but that everything must be done with common sense and the realization that no matter how much you plan, we can always count on the unexpected.

Loved the book and will be passing it on to others who I believe will benefit from it. That is the beauty of something this well-written there is no expiration date on its value.
